Last month we had and Will Hampson performing on the . It was a lovely warm Spring evening. The river was looking gorgeous and the music was perfect. Folk on the boat returns in September, why not subscribe to our newsletter so you can be first in line for tickets. The boat can only take 40 people so the show could sell out fast. Cruise on Bedford’s beautiful Ouse with a glass of booze, good folk and nice views. Or something!

If you missed Bryony and Will, here’s a session they recorded for us before the show. Here they perform ‘The Ringers of Egloshayle’. We’ll be recording a podcast with them in a few weeks all about the background to this song.

If you’re new to The Mill Race Folk podcast, you can listen to our first four episodes here. We have music and folk song discussion with Laura Smyth and Ted Kemp, The Foxglove Trio, Stick in the Wheel and Gemma Khawaja. Subscribe so you don’t miss an episode. Also, let us know what you think of the podcast by contacting us with your thoughts and comments. We’d love to hear from you.
